How to Make Twice Baked Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake potatoes for 45-60 minutes or until soft to the touch when gently squeezed. Remove from oven and allow to cool enough to handle them.
  2. In a large bowl add the sour cream, butter, Monterey Jack, 2/3 cup cheddar cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cut 1/4 inch off the top of the potato creating a opening to gently scoop out the cooked potato leaving 1/3 inch shell all the way around. Add the potatoes to the bowl with the other ingredients and using a hand held mixer blend until smooth. The amount of milk may vary slightly so add a little at a time until the mixture is creamy.
  3. Scoop the mixed potatoes back into the shells. Top with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with bacon, scallions and chives.
